An Ipswich prisoner has surrendered to police this morning after a two-day roof-top protest at Borallon Correctional Centre.

Alex Richmond-Sinclair, 25, who is serving a 12-year sentence for killing an inmate at Woodford Correctional Centre, climbed off the roof at 9.30am after holding a one-man protest against inadequate medical care for inmates. He had laid three large banners across the roof, reading, “Prisoners get inadequate medical care = torture, severe physical and mental anguish. Adequate health care is not a privilege, it is a duty of care.”

State Opposition corrective services spokesman Vaughan Johnson said the incident put a big question mark over security at the prison.  The Department of Corrective Services was unable to say how Mr Richmond-Sinclair managed to climb up on to the roof.
